Most of the fires glow red as does the oven in the kitchen and there are wall sockets for lamps etc in most rooms.
Electrics: The house has had new copper buss strips fitted and has been neatly re-wired down to 2 x brand new. Power supplies fitted with jack-plugs and sockets securely mounted at the rear of the house onto the base board. One power supply supplies power to the two lower floors and the other supplies power to the three upper floors. In a house such as this there are always little things that need attention. This house has very little.I think one bulb needs replacing and one door seems to be stuck, but other than that I can see very little. One room was about to be re-decorated due simply to a proposed change of use, but is still in pretty nice condition.
The new curtains, carpet and wall paper for this room are included and can be seen in the photo of the accessories shown above Photo No. The piano in the music room plays music when wound-up!The dimensions of the house itself are.

There is much more I could say about this beautiful house but as they say,'a picture is better than a thousand words'. So please examine the photos.
